Read full description of the books:
Samuel Beckett is an Irishman, born in Dublin, graduated from Trinity College, who now lives in Paris and writes in French, although his earlier books, including the novel MURPHY, were written in English.
His play, WAITING FOR GODOT (En attendant Godot), opened in Paris in 1953 and was met with tremendous acclaim and has since successfully played in many countries in Europe. In England, the London Times termed it "...one of the most noble and moving plays of our Generation..."
The three postwar French novels, MOLLOY, MALONE and L’INNOMMABLE, form a trilogy which has established an important place for Beckett in the French literary world. Jean Blanzat in Le Figaro Litteraire has said "The writing, the organization, the originality of the imagery, all bear out the publisher’s claim that this is indeed one of the major works of the postwar era."
When MOLLOY, the first to be translated in this country, was published, one critic, Glenn Edinger, said "The writing of MOLLOY is hardly believable. Those who find the philosophy of the novel pessimistic or who find the characters distasteful, still will find beauty in the writing. The sense of the value of each word is wonderfully maintained. The paradox of lucid confusion is exemplified in MOLLOY: the saying that style is meaning is demonstrated beautifully. MOLLOY is bound to be controversial. But Beckett seems to be on author to be reckoned with."

Read information about the authorSamuel Barclay Beckett was an Irish avant-garde novelist, playwright, theatre director, and poet, who lived in France for most of his adult life. He wrote in both English and French. His work offers a bleak, tragicomic outlook on human nature, often coupled with black comedy and gallows humour.
Beckett is widely regarded as among the most influential writers of the 20th century. Strongly influenced by James Joyce, he is considered one of the last modernists. As an inspiration to many later writers, he is also sometimes considered one of the first postmodernists. He is one of the key writers in what Martin Esslin called the "Theatre of the Absurd". His work became increasingly minimalist in his later career.
Beckett was awarded the 1969 Nobel Prize in Literature "for his writing, which—in new forms for the novel and drama—in the destitution of modern man acquires its elevation". He was elected Saoi of Aosdána in 1984.
